Walking in Faith…even when times are tough.

In Thrive, author and teacher Jen Cowart helps women develop the habits and attitudes necessary to thrive whatever their circumstances. Leading readers through the book of James, a letter written about enduring hardships, she lifts up six characteristics of mature Christians. From endurance and humility to controlling the words we speak, Jen helps participants find the divine and the practical in living faithfully.

Jen’s teaching has inspired thousands of women across the country. Her authenticity inspires others to open their hearts and minds. One reviewer wrote, ‘her “realness”, and her vulnerability just work together to open your heart to dig deeper and deeper.’

Through this study, women will find inspiration and tools around six traits:
1. Endurance – Embracing obstacles as a means to maturity.
2. Wisdom – Using a heavenly perspective on earthly issues.
3. Action – Living a life where actions match faith.
4. Control – Taming the tongue.
5. Humility – Developing the attitude of Christ.
6. Prayer – Exercising the power tool of the faith.

Additional components for this six-week Bible study, each available separately, are a Leader Guide and six video sessions, 20 to 25-minutes in length (with closed captioning).

Discover how God is pursuing you as you explore His relentless love from Genesis to Revelation in Pursued by Jennifer Cowart.

We all want to be loved. We long to be desired, pursued—whether by a special someone, our friends, or others in our lives. This longing for love and acceptance is the underlying story of many of our lives, and it\'s the overarching story we see throughout the Scriptures. Although the Bible tells many stories, the main theme is God’s relentless love for us.

In Pursued, a six-week Bible study by Jennifer Cowart, we will explore God’s great love for us from Genesis to Revelation. We will see that God passionately pursues people who do not deserve His love, and we are those people!

Like Cain, Abraham, Sarah, Rebekah, David, the woman caught in adultery, Peter, and so many others, we are the ones who have broken relationship with God. But He runs after us anyway to bring us home.

In this study, we will explore God’s love as evidenced in the stories of creation, the patriarchs, the judges and prophets, Jesus, and the early church. Together we will dive into a great love story and discover that it is our story!

Through this study women will:

  • See the big picture of God’s love for them throughout the Scriptures
  • Discover that God wants a personal relationship with them
  • Experience God’s relentless love for them individually
  • Realize that God never stops pursuing them

Components for this six-week Bible study, each available separately, include a Participant Workbook, a Leader Guide, and video sessions with six 20 to 25-minute segments (with closed captioning).

Learn from the fierce women of God who changed the world.

The word fierce is trendy. It is used to describe women who are extreme athletes, high-level executives, or supermodels. Women at the top of their game. But what about the rest of us? Can we be fierce? Absolutely! In fact, women like us have been changing the world for thousands of years—many who received little fanfare yet lived fiercely anyway. In this six-week study we will look at lesser-known female characters in the Bible and the ways they changed the world by living into God’s calling, including:

  • The midwives of Egypt (Shiphrah and Puah), who made hard decisions in the face of evil
  • Deborah, who was an unlikely and powerful leader
  • Naaman\'s slave girl, who bravely points others to God\'s healing power
  • The Woman at the Well, who boldly repented and shared her faith
  • Lois and Eunice, who parented with intentionality and effectiveness
  • Dorcas, who showed kindness to those in need.

As we explore their lives, we will discover how we too can live into our callings, honor the Lord, and even change the world through our courage, faithfulness, and obedience.

Bible Study Features:

  • A six-week study of lesser-known female characters in the Bible.
  • Helps women consider how they can be fierce women of God.
  • Workbook includes five devotional lessons for every week of study.
  • Each DVD segment features an opening “fierce” vignette followed by engaging Bible teaching with practical life application.

Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Leader Guide and DVD.

Every life gets messy at times. Sometimes these messes are literal, like a house that would be easier to condemn than to clean. But sometimes they are intangible messes such as illness, conflict, depression, abuse, bankruptcy, divorce, and job loss. And these messes can be painful, hurting our hearts and our homes. But as we see in the Bible, God loves to use messy people!

In this six-week study, we will dig into the lives of biblical heroes who were messy people just like us but who were used by God in powerful ways. Together we will examine the stories of five wonderful but messy people and one messy parable character: Rahab, the Prodigal Son, Josiah, Mary, David, and Daniel. From their stories, we will learn how God can use broken people, restore damaged hearts and relationships, give us power to handle our critics, and help us deal with the hard moments of life. Along the way we’ll discover that we don’t have to just endure messy lives but can actually learn to thrive with God’s guidance and help. In the hands of God, our messes can become His masterpieces!

We all want to be loved. We long to be desired, pursued—whether by a special someone, our friends, or others in our lives. This longing for love and acceptance is the underlying story of many of our lives, and it\'s the overarching story we see throughout the Scriptures. Although the Bible tells many stories, the main theme is God’s relentless love for us.

In Pursued, a six-week Bible study by Jennifer Cowart, we will explore God’s great love for us from Genesis to Revelation. We will see that God passionately pursues people who do not deserve His love, and we are those people!

Like Cain, Abraham, Sarah, Rebekah, David, the woman caught in adultery, Peter, and so many others, we are the ones who have broken relationship with God. But He runs after us anyway to bring us home.

In this study, we will explore God’s love as evidenced in the stories of creation, the patriarchs, the judges and prophets, Jesus, and the early church. Together we will dive into a great love story and discover that it is our story!

Through this study women will:

- See the big picture of God’s love for them throughout the Scriptures
- Discover that God wants a personal relationship with them
- Experience God’s relentless love for them individually
- Realize that God never stops pursuing them

Session Descriptions
Week 1
In the video for week 1, Jen explores Genesis 1 to show that since the very beginning God has pursued us with a relentless love, even sending His own Son to pursue us. God’s plan has always been for us to live in a rich, full relationship with Him.
Week 2
In the video for week 2, Jen shares the story of Leah from Genesis 29 to explore what it means to feel unloved and overlooked and discover that you are chosen by God. Whatever disappointments and hurts we face, God see us, pursues us, and is always enough for us.
Week 3
In the video for week 3, Jen digs into the story of Hosea and Gomer to paint a picture of unwavering commitment and unconditional love and forgiveness for us. God pursues us despite our massive failures, and that’s very good news.
Week 4
In the video for week 4, Jen shows that God’s rescue mission through Jesus was never plan B but always plan A. God paid the price for your life—a price you could not afford—because God delights in you.
Week 5
In the video for week 5, Jen explores the stories of the woman caught in adultery and the thief on the cross to show us God’s passionate pursuit of us. She reminds us that salvation is amazingly simple, God’s love is available to us no matter what we’ve done, our salvation depends on faith alone.
Week 6
In the video for week 6, Jen discusses how to be a pursued pursuer, sharing Christ with others by inviting them to “come and see” and being a show-and-tell believer. She also shares three suggestions that can help us prepare to pursue others for Jesus.', 'alternative_name' => 'Video-DVD', 'subtitle' => 'Gods Relentless Love for YOU', 'parent_isbn' => array ( ), 'book' => 'No', 'title' => 'Pursued DVD', 'image' => array ( 'dc1ec80a898c9' => array ( 'link' => '', 'index' => 0, 'caption' => '', 'url' => '/media/image/9781791014797.jpg', 'type' => 'image', ), ), 'retailers' => array ( 0 => array ( '_display' => 'Amazon', '_id' => '57bc51474c5b61ac7de4f8ea', ), 1 => array ( '_display' => 'Barnes & Noble', '_id' => '57bdf1d34c5b61fb493ba4cb', ), 2 => array ( '_display' => 'Bookshop.org', '_id' => '5ed1233f1280b12c756e5c19', ), 3 => array ( '_display' => 'Christianbook.com', '_id' => '57bdf2c24c5b61ee493ba4cd', ), 4 => array ( '_display' => 'Cokesbury', '_id' => '57bdf31c4c5b61ea493ba4cc', ), 5 => array ( '_display' => 'Get It Local.

Leading readers through the Book of James, a letter written about enduring hardships, she lifts up six characteristics of mature Christians. From endurance and humility to controlling our words, Jen helps participants find the divine and the practical in living faithfully.

Jen’s teaching has inspired thousands of women across the country. Her authenticity inspires others to open their hearts and minds. One reviewer wrote, “Her ‘realness’ and her vulnerability just work together to open your heart to dig deeper and deeper.”

Through this study, women will find inspiration and tools around six traits:
Endurance – Embracing obstacles as a means to maturity.
Wisdom – Using a heavenly perspective on earthly issues.
Action – Living a life where actions match faith.
Control – Taming the tongue.
Humility – Developing the attitude of Christ.
Prayer – Exercising the power tool of the faith.

Session Descriptions

Intro Video
In this introductory video, Jen sets the stage for a study of lesser known but truly incredible women of the Old and New Testaments who teach us what it means to be a fierce woman of God.

Week 1
In this video segment, Jen introduces us to Shiprah and Puah, midwives of Egypt who pushed beyond their fear to honor God, ultimately blessing the entire nation of Israel. We too can overcome our fears to serve God by faithfully serving others.

Week 2
This week Jen introduces us to Deborah, an Old Testament prophetess and spiritual leader who also bravely led the Israelite army. Like Deborah, we can encourage ourselves in the Lord and step out bravely to do the big things God is calling us to do.

Week 3
In this video segment, Jen shares lessons we can learn from an unnamed servant girl who shared her faith in a practical way with the very people who held her captive. We can follow her example and show kindness to those who don’t deserve it.

Week 4
This week Jen explores the story of the woman at the well to remind us that Jesus wants to give each of us a rich and satisfying life whatever our circumstances might be. He offers us the gift of living water, a gift that changes us so that we may change the world.

Week 5
In this video segment Jen gives us understanding into the life of Dorcas, who used her talents and abilities to bless others and, in the end, wound up being blessed in a mighty way. When we put our talents, abilities, spiritual gifts, and experiences into God’s hands, He is able to do more than we could ever imagine.

Week 6
In this final video segment, Jen uses the example of Lois and Eunice to remind us that the intentional choices we make to help others develop and grow in faith leave a lasting legacy. How we share our faith is pivotal in shaping those we love and enriching the world.
